I thought I would start my own thread as I have a few bits I have been asked to do . Also those that are not interested can ignore it . The first handle here is for a Vesuvius, made out of Blackw

@Snakehips in the morning? 

So the LMLM project all buffed up and ready to fit

I have now finished two handles in Thuya Burr for a special little lever .

As the threaded portion on the lever and the Portafilter are quite short I’ve inserted some Aluminium tube for 3/4 of the length of the handles . The aluminium was threaded to size , then  knurled on the outside to be a push fit into the wood and glued .

The handles have three coats of cellulose wood sealer and finished with multiple coats of Melamine lacquer.. Sanding to 2500 grit between each coat . Finished off with some buffing. Also included  a picture of the finished tamper handle ..
